Fox News host Laura Ingraham taking heat for telling LeBron James to "shut up and dribble"
The NBA star said President Trump doesn't "give a f*ck about the people," prompting the conservative Fox News host to slam him and Kevin Durant for their anti-Trump comments. “Must they run their mouths like that? Unfortunately a lot of kids and some adults take these ignorant comments seriously,” she said, adding that "it’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who get paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball.” Her comments were met with a fierce response on Twitter, accusing her of barely disguised racism. "They use to try and hide it.. now the president has given everyone the courage to live their truths," tweeted James' former teammate Dwyane Wade. "Someone tell this bitch to meet me outside... Im so not in the mood for playing nice or polite this week," added Grey's Anatomy's Ellen Pompeo.
